Fathom Journal: Dahlia Scheindlin on what Israel-Palestine can learn from Cyprus

Cyprus has experienced a protracted, unresolved conflict for roughly five decades. Like Israel-Palestine, the conflict has ethno-nationalist and territorial dimensions, tension between a sovereign state and a sub-state entity, and a hostile military presence, as well as decades of failed negotiations, with both sides showing ambiguous commitment to the intended political framework for resolution, despite the intense involvement of the international community. Dr. Dahlia Scheindlin mapped points of comparison related to conflict resolution efforts in both cases when she spoke to a Fathom Forum in London on 1 December 2016.
